This story had a great premise and even started off pretty well. Though after a good start it just lets you down.
The story as a whole is very slow and the switching between characters makes it very confusing. When the story could have been told from just the viewpoint of the main character Doug. Instead it jumps around too much and has a lot of wasted conversation between characters who aren't important to the story.
The narrator does a less than decent job with the character voices and his range is not very good. At some point the character voices just get annoying. I found myself just waiting for this book to be over.
All in all this book had a lot of potential but underachieved in many ways.
Bored the crap out of me. Couldn't keep my attention and very slow. Won't get the next one.
Read the whole series of books from this author and couldn't start listening to the next book quick enough. The flow of the story in each book and from book to book was amazing. Would like to see more from this author.
This book ranks pretty high with some of the best book/series i've listened to. Hope see more from this author.
Honestly can't compare this to anything i've listened to so far.
He does a great job bringing life to the characters and story.
This is a great book and overall an even better series of books.The author does a great job telling the story and keeping your attention. If you like sci-fi this is a great listen. Listened to the whole series and enjoyed every bit of it.
I saw this book and got it cause it was really cheap and my wife wanted me to get it for her. Figured "hey, why not give it a try myself." Famous last words. Ok, it wasn't that bad but didn't hold me attention much and was just kind of boring. Didn't feel like there was much in the way of action and it was bit to buffy the vampire slayer for me. The narration wasn't too bad, but the story itself just didn't do it for me.
Been saving a credit and waiting for this book to come out since listening to the free preview. I must say, well worth the wait and the credit.
To start the premise of this book is a new twist to the super powered people story. Within the first 5 minutes this book had me hooked. There were serious moments and moments that had me laughing. The main charater is a very likeable and makes you want to see how things turn out. The author does a great job creating charaters with different personalities and backgrounds which makes this book much deeper and interesting to listen to.
The narrator does a good job with the range of charater voices bringing them all to life in different ways.
Though this book seemed to come to a close but I'm hoping there will be more books added since it is called the reckoners series. There are so many more avenues yet to be explored with the plot of this story. Hopefully the next book will be out some time in the near future.
I had seen this book around a couple times but wasn't sure if i should get it. I am glad I finally did. I'm not normally into fantasy books but this one pulled me in from the start. The realism of what happens to kids growing up in a very poor place mixed with the coming of age of a legend.
Honestly couldn't stop listening to this book. And the story is not as straight forward as it may seem.
The narrator did a very good job bringing the characters to life and helped suck me into the story.
Looking forward to the rest of the series. Definitely getting the next book.
I don't think i would cause i started to lose interest in this book.
Probably the main character but any time it switched it got boring real fast.
The performance was good, but story lost its spark.
No, Wish i did cause i like John Ringo.
I haven't read the print version.
The narrator did a great job and has very good range in his voices.
No, the narration was bad and story wasn't very good either. Had to force myself to finish this book.
Would have used another narrator and made the story less slow.
No, he was awful.
No, the story was not that good.
